We’re Putting You to Work to Spread the Word!

Catholic Missions In Canada is one of the best kept secrets in our land.  Comparatively speaking, very few Canadian Catholics know about CMIC.  They don’t know that we solely support our ‘home’ missions and nothing else.  They don’t know that our work allows us to assist those who serve in small and often isolated communities […]

Gifts of Indigenous Ministry

Those who engage in the service of others often state that in doing so, they receive more than they give.  These are certainly the sentiments of 10 Sisters, 4 priests and a bishop, all of whom have ministered among the Indigenous people of Western and Northern Canada and who now live at Trinity Manor, a […]

A Seminarian’s Missionary Journey

I am William Mancao, a Filipino from the Missionary Seminary Redemptoris Mater of Vancouver, a fruit of the Neocatechumenal Way. I’ve finished my Philosophy and Theology studies and as part of my seminary formation, I’ve been sent for a year to Whitehorse. I arrived in July. It is a massive diocese that contains the whole […]

I grew up in the St. John Diocese. We’d occasionally […]

We had barely arrived when Papa ordered 100 chickens, (75 meat birds and 25 laying hens) and two pigs. We were considering getting a puppy, but fortunately […]

He was subsidized by our Bursary Fund while studying at Newman Theological College in Edmonton and attending St. Joseph’s Seminary. We rejoice with his diocese. The following article was written by Fr. Le while still a deacon. Peace and […]

Some Thoughts on Friendship

One of the periodicals to which I subscribe recently featured the theme of ‘friendship,’ making me think about this in my life. I have friends whom I see only periodically, but when we meet up it’s like carrying on from the last time because we feel so comfortable with each other. We hold each other […]

The Tastes of Heaven Gala

Tastes of Heaven

The Tastes of Heaven Gala has been a CMIC tradition for 22 years and was started by several Catholic business people, including our Honorary Gala Chair, Frank Morneau.  Their vision was to create an event to help CMIC kick-start its annual fund-raising efforts.  It grew successfully until 2019, but in 2020 our world came apart […]
